Play for a Purpose- “Making” your child an athlete by accident

September 27, 2006

 

I can remember my childhood and growing up better than most people. I have an extremely good memory and I really don’t know why. I can remember most of what I did as a kid, even from a very young age. Don’t worry, this isn’t about my incredible memory skills, but rather an aspect of my childhood that I think was incredibly important.

One of the best set of memories that I have, is where we lived…no not just my home, rather the street that we lived on, and the people that lived on that street, and most importantly…what we did. Read the rest of this entry »

“Move in, now move out
Hands up, now hands down
Back up, back up
Tell me what you’re gonna do now
Breathe in, now breathe out
Hands up, now hands down
Back up, back up
Tell me what you’re gonna do now.

Keep rollin’ rollin’ rollin’ rollin’ (yeah)

“Ok Keith, I have heard you spout off about this foam roller thing on you dumb blog, and even heard you talking about it at a bar down the shore one night! What is it, and how do I do it??”

Obviously I love the foam roller. I cannot say it in the same context that I will say I love chocolate, or I love the beach, or even how much I love to watch 24 and the Family Guy…But lets be clear, when it comes to feeling better, and being better, I love the foam roller. So what is the foam roller and what do you do with it. Where do I get one of these? And finally, how can I use it and feel better? Read the rest of this entry »


Training for Life

September 13, 2006

  As people get older and start to drift away from that active “athlete” they once were, many have no reason to workout. Some cannot get motivated to do what they must or need to do. Others will read a blog like this and tell me that I am out of my mind if I think they will do any of this stuff…what for? There is nothing to train for anymore.

I always like to ask people that workout why they are working out, or why they are training. Sometimes I hear things like “To stay healthy”, or “To get into shape”, and I always follow it up with “why do you need to get into shape”?

That is a trick question for people. Many just stare at me blankly and don’t know what to say.

I like to offer up that people should be training for the most important event they will ever encounter…LIFE. “Train for life”. Read the rest of this entry »

“Help…I have shin splints!”

Shin Splints

I hate the term shin splints. Everyone thinks they have shin splints. The truth is, some do, many do not. Shin splints have come to symbolize every single ache and pain that someone has in their lower leg. Shin splints are however, a generic term for a specific condition.
